Abstract

Background/purpose: Detection of approximal caries may be difficult using conventional methods including visual inspection (VI) and radiography. The purpose of this in vitro research was to evaluate the efficiency of light-emitting diode (LED) and laser fluorescence (LF) devices, and radiographic and visual examination in approximal caries diagnosis.
